those are the headlines inside stories next. tax cuts and promises of reforms president emanuel macron followers to transform france is his response to months of yellow vests protests and nothing to stop the riots this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program i'm adrian finnegan they are the results of the so-called great debate after months of hearing complaints from the length and
breadth of france emanuel mccraw has told t.v. viewers that he's listening to the cries for change he's responded to the biggest challenge to his presidency by offering some concessions to the best protesters they've brought paris and other cities to a standstill every saturday for months now demanding cuts to the cost of living across proposing lower taxes for some pensions reform stopping the closure of schools and hospitals and making it easier to hold a referendum on vital issues there are other proposals too but are they enough to stop the riots and revolt against his ideas for the future of france we'll get to that soon with our guests but first here's al-jazeera is natasha in paris. at his first presidential press conference on domestic affairs emanuel mark all said he'd listen to people's grievances over social inequality and the french political system in response he offered a raft of new policies including a reduction of m.p.'s and income tax cuts for workers let me you're going to fuel
the best way to address the needs of fiscal justice is not to increase the taxes of dispersal of that person no it's rather to lower taxes for the greatest number of our fellow citizens in particular for those clothes and part of the middle class is also touched on personal matters saying he regretted some people considered him our current. i've given the impression of always giving a lot of being tough and at times unfair this i regret because it's not why i am and it's not helped our cause. macro's new policies were based on the findings of the great debate an initiative he launched in january to give people a chance to discuss their concerns at a town hall meetings and online an attempt by the president to end months of yellow vestry protests if the cost of living in the state of politics emanuel not all hope that his speech in new policies will convince french people that he's heard their
concerns over the social inequality and he's trying to help he knows that if he fails to persuade them his credibility his popularity i does a policy to continue with his reforms will suffer. in paris yellow vests supporters gathered after the president's speech and said did not give up their battle the sort of my reaction to he says speech is one ward resign when a government does not answer to people it is necessary to hold elections again who will continue your demonstrations to convince mr mccracken to this of these government the real test the macro will be how the wider public will regard his new policies and whether he's managed to bury his reputation as a president who favors the rich this it'll doubt that the timing is vital halfway through his presidential term and just one month until the european elections he urgently needs to rebuild trust natasha butler al-jazeera paris.
let's bring in our guests for today joining us from paris chief foreign correspondent at le figaro from london charles let's field european affairs analyst at the eurasia group and on skype from san malo or head of european research of the global policy institute but welcome to inside story if we could begin with you has president bush said and done enough to put an end to the yellow this protests i don't think. actually. is of course a tiny minority. but they're really in a they want to remove from power they just don't have. sent. it's more they have some kind of. hatred for him though
i don't think personally his men that should be heated you couldn't agree or disagree with him but this is the way the yellow vests think and. you will still have some kind of protest i think against him because as a matter of fact we have to consider that. he has lost a lot of the clout that he had after is the election in two thousand and seventeen if you if you like people much more desire pointed with reagan mccourt today that of course they were days of action is two thousand and seventeen chance which field in london twenty extent then is it not the policies but the man that is the problem here it's true that the yellow vest protesters who have been protesting until now the sort of hardcore the remaining hardcore won't be satisfied by the policies yesterday and. they obviously
dislike macro but i think anything he could have said any poland or for that reason any policy could have come up with wouldn't really have been enough but that wasn't necessarily the goal of yesterday's appearance and i think he was really unsettled by the support for the other vets movement at the very beginning in december some really rather scary polls for him showing seventy five percent eighty percent of the french agreeing that's receded quite substantially and i think the whole goal of yesterday was to start a new phase in his presidency where he can talk to those who no longer agree with you might have had some sympathy at the beginning but no longer do and as far as that's concerned the policies he announced yesterday might be somewhat successful we can discuss it ok ron on the same question to you to what extent is it not the policies but but the man that is the problem here. a very large extent indeed.
yes you know of us have already announced they would keep keep but they have protested already called protest vote tomorrow in paris and you know the towns in france they're pretty sure it is a shrinking number of demonstrators and michael was not addressing the you know best even though you mentioned them early in his intervention but to actually make a difference between do claims of the you know vest he claims which he agreed were actually funded were right and they were right to complain and the vent and medium set of that yet note some of the programs that now he was ready to tackle them and he already announced some measures in december we satisfied what they're up of first yesterday and so on on some reforms which we said these five pension or element of do you know. we're going to buy a real risk index seat pension so. it was said earlier
was the factory to come to have you know that what remains of the you know as down is a was two appeared to appoint a section to. electorate twenty five percent rooted for him and to some of the people on the center right attracted by support he seized and in that sense you could say that it's been reasonably successful to just size yesterday because you see that popular is the aberrant the according to the polls of today he's managed to convince thirty seven percent of the french which is quite an achievement because to actually charm city twenty seven doesn't run is quite a undertaking and so is the demand result when you figure that he spoke you know generating was just of over twenty five percent before his intervention run a year out in paris was this the speech of the leader does he have an air of presidential authority about him is that mayor culpa wasn't that when he said that
he could have adopted a different tone and style of leadership in the first two years of his presidency was this speech made with an i do you think on reelection in twenty twenty. i don't think sure i think it's a bit too early but we have to remember that sixty maybe thirty seven percent of the french were convenes but there's another figure which i think it's more which is the more important is that sixty three percent and of. the people who listen to the president were not convinced though it really made a lot of efforts to try to you know to get everybody with him. so. this is not a success this is not a filler either he show that he was a compared to and man it was hard working but maybe it was more a minister's speech than
a president it was very technical he looked like it was long it was old big block boring bland you could say and and he went into details that are actually the responsibility of the prime minister and the government and not of a president the president in char in france is in charge of the real big decisions if you like diplomacy war or peace and the great you know constitutional constitutional changes and sob but the. president is not in charge of the deed today social policy of the government. and there is an article in the constitution's that it is the government that debtor minds and leads and conducts the policy of the nation so i think that. core looked
a little bit too much as a technocrat and not as a president in the sense of you can see that you know. the gauls lost ball be due or falls were meteo and bloodied really the president of france johnson is fair what do you make of that it was more of a minister's speech than than than a presidential one sixty three percent of the electorate still not convinced to what extent is all of this little too late. too little too late for french voters i tend to disagree with the previous panelists and perhaps a great degree of it more. tell me where it's evidently the case that the president spoke about sort of more technical measures and didn't look like a de golyer a mr on but in twenty nineteen i'm not sure if that's really the expectations the french have in fact macro at the beginning of his presidency spent an awful lot of time trying to come across as a jew patisserie and president a sort of god like figure and it came across really it's rather in written rather
strange strange fashion i say for such a young man to behave like a greek god or a roman god. so this is beyond as he's trying to open the second act of his presidency i think it is understandable that he's trying to talk a bit more concretely about what he can do for the french and i'd also say that police policy in france has accelerated since two thousand and two in that there's been. sort of saying that the elections for presidents and for parliaments have been synchronized and therefore presidents have become more responsible for the actions of individual governments you don't have this kind of removed figure of a president the president is expected to be involved in day to day politics that may be incoherent with the original spirit of the fifth republic but that's the reality we have and so the reason i disagree i suppose is that tried a different tack which may or may not work time will tell but he came across as perhaps a bit less regal or divine his desk wasn't sort of gilded but actually white and
quite sort of minimalist and he talked about real issues so time will tell whether it works what you make of that. yeah it will be charged too because actually east to himself yesterday that some of the measures he was indicating that he was proposing such as going to some that is asian do kind of. taxes which can be cut to the kind of public spending which can be cut will be decided by the gov and he gives directions that as he's wrote it's up to the government as the constitution stipulates to enact these pretty see so is rolle yesterday i think was quite right to give some direction and effort he gave the sense of direction basically that he hasn't change direction every challenge he stop and michael cannot be defined other the nation like to gore was all a. given she and i could be at some point because of his age anyway and because of
is approach is actually made the point that he's big on earning curve so it's a bit quite an exhibition of a certain modest texas station in the last two years or some really nice not quite fit because actually because of his life he was removed from many people and to come on people's program is look in the last two years that maybe the measures he had who took his top down approach the debate don't approach charter say the idea is not suited to and friends want people who understand then the debate. for that to happen he wants to show that is recent he's already made some consideration we should go towards the demands of the faith based on a do we do specific ever fix he wants to involve that but the government has a role to play but there are so more the citizens are still going to live all alone
or mayors so he wants to promote a top down governance as it was before. and let's see where that can work run a changing tack slightly here what is it that the french want the people they say they want lower taxes employment opportunities reforms better public services fewer decisions made by the elite in paris but many are unwilling it seems to accept longer working hours or higher retirement age less social security is what the french want pretty much like briggs it is in the u.k. want i suppose undeliverable ultimately whoever is in power is that thing that you know it's how do you do politics in western democracy. there were cameron in and instead of barring a leadership and saying we are going to improve our position in the
european union we are going to make this european union work cameron decided it's not up to me to decide but it's up to the people again and again to decide and i will do a referral and so mccall should really poor little ship. and he made a huge crisis which is not finished in britain you need leadership. did. show a lot of leadership yesterday i am not so sure i'm not so sure that people listen to him to the end i don't think so the they were bored quite quickly he showed good competence you show that he was a good technocrat i don't think he showed leadership and if you
sure leadership you just say and make the people follow you in a policy and he started to. to to say that he was elected on the program that it would reform france because forms as he very costly welfare state that does not bring said his fakes satisfaction to its people is the huge well first aid no satisfaction for the people and the problem is that mccall said that it would reform it but actually it didn't take in the first hundred days all the measures that shewed as have reformed this wealth stayed and finally yesterday told us. that you know he had a promise of reducing. the size of the civil service in france which is. the biggest. the heaviest civil service in the whole europe and
apparently it was it was all a bit blurred but apparently he will give up this this reform so actually. at the same time he did not reform the system he will be still criticized by by germany for instance because of huge french dificid and at the same time he didn't bring satisfaction to the most poor people of france and. the yellow vest population so i don't think that for the time being he is a really beginning act to or if you think that is beginning an act number two i don't really read the scenario ok a chance to show a white why couldn't a court of introduce the measures that he's introducing now earlier in his term. is
there any alternative in terms of leadership in france right now to president mccraw and how will his party or marsh fare in in the forthcoming european elections. so to take those three questions one by one the reason why some of these policies wasn't presented before is simply because we've had a great debate recently and it was important to show that this great debate this served some purpose and that it inspired some kind of change of cap in macro leadership although some my fellow panelists seem to think he isn't showing much of that quality so that's why the policies came up now some of them follow through on what he announced in the summer some are a much more specific response to i think frustrations with which macro felt to be fair to him he did take part in his own debates he actually turned up as a sort of surprise guest at some of them and usually did quite well and you know yesterday's exercise of banging on for three hours about various measures is an exercise he's very good at and while it can be quite tedious to watch it on television people who attend usually get quite drawn in and so using the great
debate he did speired some policies to respond to various frustrations one very key one was sort of simplifying administrative tasks and bringing them all into one place which may be maybe sort of called service france or something ok simplifying access to public service is your second question was on a lot of political town is it a macro for the moment there isn't really one i mean he's decimated the the traditional parties of government and so the alternatives are really extremes which for the moment don't seem ready to win in a two round race and your third question how well we do in the european parliament elections in a month and his list is sort of neck and neck with the far right the far right i believe is ahead this week but it really varies from week to week and that's the big challenge for him as a pro european president i think it's very important for him to come first in the european elections occasion we haven't got to the bottom of this question of what the french want do they want macro or national they want the far right. who will do the french and this is a big question and every president was attempted to reform france and
met with a bruise or to try is be sort of go through. on soc was it before it was ship before dime that they want to make structural reforms a stronger position it was even the case for my quote earlier all in one it changes . liberalized station and a reform or a way work you had to face. right was used to privatized in a way to a party to competition yet to face huge demonstrations but you know to give it ok and that's it's always been you should undergo just to say do you want to can you governor country with for a hundred sixty five different types of cheese and he'd seen in there of an education when you look at the what comes out of the debate two main things that people of want is they less tax more public services how do you reconcile stewie's
that is. very very difficult to square that circle and yesterday for example many many measures will displease is right wing supporters especially the fact that he decided not to implement hundred fifty five thousand job cuts into cities has yet to do it because there's a demand for public services maybe it would be redeploying these people etc so. i don't think he has a sense of leadership is very difficult in france to reform this time yes to changes. try to evolve more of the bodies in there just in the making of a decision and some of the decisions he announced yesterday go towards that at first when he said he wanted to work more closely with the unions which early on in his mandate eeg note and yesterday it was very striking to see that the most
positive reaction to his speech yesterday was that of the reformist union see if anyone. loads of good fakes and we see the do use are not quite reassured by the fact that he won't make seven cuts in public spending. or so proud he wants to define difference or should not or just been under attack from many quarters in europe and within france in the us for years and that is something that we. that we send him a good case and make it chances for his government for his part is this do you buy that action to maybe come ahead of not in a pen because it's true he has no position i don't want conflict of a cigar we could take over the presidency for a final question i'll go off on you for voice in the middle here charles that field in london. charles i need you to be under a minute here if you can guess what time is tight if there were
a general election always and only half way through his term but if there were to be a general election in france tomorrow would he win. well there are different types of elections in france and they're all too round elections so you can't really read them through a british lens or a german one but in a presidential election i think he would win he still has the support of the twenty four percent of voted for him in the first round in twenty seventeen and then assuming he would be up against an extremely candid is of the far right or the far left mr middle of the far left is quite a. quite a strong figure in the opposition on the far left so whether he had he were to face mrs append or mr millet or he beat them not as convincingly as in twenty seventeen but he would so that's not saying that he'll win in twenty twenty two the next election is quite low quite a long way away if you ask me what would happen in the immediate future and he would probably went just many thanks indeed gentlemen there we must end our discussion thank you all for being with us today when i was here out in paris charles this field in london and jack role in san paolo at ever get you can see the
